Stop pregnancy before it starts

You deserve a Restart. With the same active ingredient as Plan B One-Step®, Restart™ is a safe and effective way to prevent pregnancy after unprotected sex – lowering your risk by nearly 90%. Anyone can buy Restart™ without a prescription or trip to the drugstore — no age limit or parental consent needed.


Is There A Weight Limit For Restart™?

The TL;DR is that it’s inconclusive, but if you weigh over 165 lbs Stix recommends speaking with your primary care provider. Here’s what we know:

The FDA states that there are no concerns that would prevent someone from using levonorgestrel emergency contraceptives safely — regardless of how much they weigh. When emergency contraception is taken within 72 hours (3 days) after unprotected sex or birth control failure, it can significantly decrease your chances of pregnancy by nearly 90%.

However, there are some studies that suggest efficacy may decrease as body weight and BMI increase. If you weigh over 165 lbs or have a BMI over 25, the morning-after pill available without a prescription may not be as effective, and you may want to consider the prescription morning-after pill, ella®, or the copper IUD. If you have concerns about whether Restart™ is right for you, reach out to your primary care provider.

While everyone — at any weight — should be able to use the morning-after pill and trust that it will work effectively, Stix knows that this is not the reality. Stix is committed to advocating for accessible emergency contraception for all and works to offer better options to their customers as they become available. They urge the FDA to approve a higher dose of emergency contraception that is effective for all bodies, regardless of size.

Are There Any Side Effects When Taking Restart™?

Side effects may include changes in your period flow (heavier or lighter bleeding) or timing (your next period may be early or late), nausea, lower stomach pain, tiredness, headache, dizziness, and breast tenderness.

What If I’m Already Ovulating? Will Restart™ Work?

Restart™, or any morning-after pill with the hormone levonorgestrel, will not prevent pregnancy if you’re already ovulating. Because Restart™ prevents pregnancy by delaying ovulation, this means that if you take it while you’re ovulating it may not work as intended. It’s important to note that most don’t know exactly when they ovulate, so it’s best to take the morning-after pill as soon as possible regardless of if you think you’re about to ovulate.

How Will I Know That Restart Worked?

You’ll know Restart has effectively prevented pregnancy when you get your next period, which should come at the normal time in your cycle or within a week. If your period is delayed beyond one week, it’s possible you may be pregnant. You should take a pregnancy test and follow up with your primary care provider for next steps.

Does Restart™ Have Any Effect On My Ability To Get Pregnant In The Future?

Restart™ doesn’t impact an existing pregnancy nor does it negatively affect your ability to get pregnant in the future.

Is Restart™ Legal In My State?

Yes! Restart™ is legal across the entire country. Because Restart™ does not terminate an existing pregnancy, but simply prevents pregnancy before it happens, you can rest assured that you're safe taking Restart™.
